otherwise affected by any amendment, modification, supplement, extension, increase, replacement, renewal, restatement or refinancing of either the Junior Obligations or the Senior Obligations, by the securing of any Senior Obligations with any additional Collateral or guarantees, by the release of any Collateral or Guarantees securing any Senior Obligations, by the failure of any person to comply with any provision of this Agreement or any agreement evidencing, governing or securing any Senior Obligation or Junior Obligation or by any action that any Collateral Agent or Secured Party may take or fail to take in respect of any Collateral.

(c) It is further acknowledged that the holders of Senior Obligations of one or more classes may from time to time hereafter enter into agreements establishing the relative priorities of such classes of Senior Obligations or of the Senior Liens securing the same. It is agreed that the relative priorities of classes of Senior Obligations shall be governed by the foregoing agreements or, to the extent not determined by such agreements, by applicable law, and that nothing in this Agreement shall affect such relative priorities of classes of Senior Obligations or the related Senior Liens. It is further agreed that no agreements establishing the relative priorities of Senior Obligations of one or more classes or of the Senior Liens securing such Senior Obligations shall in any way limit or affect the subordination of the Junior Liens provided for in this Agreement or the provisions of this Agreement defining the relative rights of the Senior Obligations Secured Parties and the Junior Obligations Secured Parties.

of Senior Obligations, it being agreed that only the applicable Senior Collateral Agent, acting in accordance with the applicable Senior Obligations Security Documents, shall be entitled to take any such actions or exercise any such remedies.

In furtherance of the foregoing, each Junior Obligations Secured Party acknowledges and agrees that until the Discharge of Senior Obligations, the applicable Senior Collateral Agents shall be entitled, for the benefit of the holders of such Senior Obligations, to sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of or deal with such Collateral as provided herein and in the Credit Facilities Security Documents or the Designated Senior Obligations Security Documents, as the case may be, without regard to any Junior Lien or any rights to which the holders of the Junior Obligations would otherwise be entitled as a result of such Junior Lien. Without limiting the foregoing, each Junior Obligations Secured Party agrees that no Senior Collateral Agent or other Senior Obligations Secured Party shall have any duty or obligation first to marshall or realize upon any type of Collateral (or any other collateral securing the Senior Obligations), or to sell, dispose of or otherwise liquidate all or any portion of the Collateral (or any other collateral securing the Senior Obligations), in any manner that would maximize the return to the Junior Obligations Secured Parties, notwithstanding that the order and timing of any such realization, sale, disposition or liquidation may affect the amount of proceeds actually received by the Junior Obligations Secured Parties from such realization, sale, disposition or liquidation.

Each Junior Obligations Secured Party agrees that if, at any time, all or part of any payment with respect to any Senior Obligations previously made shall be rescinded for any reason whatsoever, such Junior Obligations Secured Party shall promptly pay over to the applicable Senior Collateral Agent any payment received by it in respect of any Collateral subject to any Senior Lien securing such Senior Obligations and shall promptly turn any Collateral subject to any such Senior Lien then held by it over to the applicable Senior Collateral Agent, and the provisions set forth in this Agreement shall be reinstated as if such payment had not been made, until the Discharge of Senior Obligations.

SECTION 2.05. Automatic Release of Junior Liens. The Junior Collateral Agent and each other Junior Obligations Secured Party agrees that, in the event of a sale, transfer or other disposition of Senior Obligations Collateral subject to any Junior Lien to a person or entity that is not the Company or a subsidiary of the Company, such Junior Lien on such Collateral (but not on the proceeds thereof, except to the extent such proceeds are applied to repay any Senior Obligations) shall terminate and be released automatically and without further action if the applicable Senior Liens on such Collateral are released. Each Junior Collateral Agent agrees to execute and deliver all such releases and other instruments as shall reasonably be requested by any applicable Senior Collateral Agent to evidence and confirm any release of Junior Obligations Collateral provided for in this Section.

ARTICLE III

Designated Senior Obligations

SECTION 3.01. Designation. The Company may from time to time, subject to any limitations contained in the Credit Agreement, any then existing Designated Senior Obligations Governing Documents and the Note Indenture, designate additional obligations that are, or are to be, secured by Liens on any assets or properties of the Company or any subsidiaries of the Company as Designated Senior Obligations by delivering to each Collateral Agent a notice:

(i) describing the obligations being designated as Designated Senior Obligations, and including a statement of the maximum aggregate outstanding principal amount of such obligations;

(ii) listing the Designated Senior Obligations Governing Documents under which such Designated Senior Obligations are issued or incurred and the Designated Senior Obligations Security Documents securing such Designated Senior Obligations, and attaching copies of such Designated Senior Obligations Governing Documents and Designated Senior Obligations Security Documents;

(iii) identifying the Designated Senior Obligations Collateral Agent with respect to such Designated Senior Obligations, and any other Representative of the holders of such Designated Senior Obligations;

(iv) certifying that the incurrence of such Designated Senior Obligations, the creation of the Liens securing such Designated Senior Obligations and the designation of such Designated Senior Obligations as Designated Senior Obligations hereunder do not violate or result in a default under any provision of any Credit Agreement, any then existing Designated Senior Obligations Governing Document or the Note Indenture;

(v) certifying that the Designated Senior Obligations Governing Document governing such Designated Senior Obligations contains provisions under which the related Designated Senior Obligations Secured Parties agree, or are deemed to agree, to be bound by the provisions of this Agreement; and

(vi) attaching a fully executed Accession Agreement under which the Designated Senior Obligations Collateral Agent with respect to such Designated Senior Obligations shall become a party to and a Collateral Agent under this Agreement (unless such Designated Senior Obligations Collateral Agent shall already be a party hereto).

 

13


Upon the delivery of such notice and the related attachments as provided above, the obligations designated in such notice shall become Designated Senior Obligations for all purposes of this Agreement. Notwithstanding any other provision contained in this Section or elsewhere in this Agreement, no obligation shall constitute a Designated Senior Obligation if the incurrence of such obligation, the creation of the Liens securing such obligation or the designation of such obligation as a Designated Senior Obligation hereunder would violate or result in a default under any provision of any Credit Agreement, any existing Designated Senior Obligations Governing Document or the Note Indenture.

Each Senior Collateral Agent agrees that if it shall at any time hold a Senior Lien on any Junior Obligations Collateral that can be perfected by the possession or control of such Collateral or of any account in which such Collateral is held, and if such Collateral or any such account is in fact in the possession or under the control of such Senior Collateral Agent, such Senior Collateral Agent will serve as sub-agent for each Junior Collateral Agent for the sole purpose of perfecting the Junior Lien of such Junior Collateral Agent in such Collateral. It is agreed that the obligations of the applicable Senior Collateral Agent and the rights of the Junior Collateral Agents and the other Junior Secured Parties in connection with any such sub-agency arrangement will be in all respects subject to the provisions of Article II. The Senior Collateral Agent will be deemed to make no representation as to the adequacy of the steps taken by it to perfect the Junior Lien on any such Collateral and shall have no responsibility to any Junior Collateral Agent or other Junior Secured Party for such perfection, it being understood that the sole purpose of this Article is to enable the Junior Secured Parties to obtain a perfected Junior Lien in such Collateral to the extent, if any, that such perfection results from the possession or control of such Collateral or any such account by the Senior Collateral Agent. Upon the Discharge of Senior Obligations with respect to Senior Obligations secured by the Senior Lien of any Senior Collateral Agent, such Senior Collateral Agent shall take all such actions in its power as shall reasonably be requested by the Junior Collateral Agent to transfer possession or control of such Collateral or any such account to the Junior Collateral Agent; provided, that if any such Collateral or any such account shall be subject to any other Senior Lien, then such Senior Collateral Agent shall instead transfer such possession or control of such Collateral or such account to the Senior Collateral Agent holding such Senior Lien. The Junior Collateral Agent agrees that if it shall obtain possession or control of any Collateral or any account pursuant to the foregoing provisions and such Collateral or account shall thereafter become subject to any Senior Lien, it will take all such actions in its power as shall reasonably be requested by the Senior Collateral Agent holding such Senior Lien to transfer possession or control of such Collateral or such account to such Senior Collateral Agent.

ARTICLE V

Existence and Amounts of Liens and Obligations

Whenever any Collateral Agent shall be required, in connection with the exercise of its rights or the performance of its obligations hereunder, to determine the existence or amount of any Senior Obligations or Junior Obligations, or the existence of any Lien securing any such obligations, or the Collateral subject to any such Lien, it may request that such information be furnished to it in writing by the Representative of such Senior Obligations or Junior Obligations and shall be entitled to make such determination on the basis of the information so furnished; provided, however, that if, notwithstanding the request of such Collateral Agent, such Representative shall fail or refuse reasonably promptly to provide the requested information, such Collateral Agent shall be entitled to determine such existence or amount by such method as it may, in the exercise of its good faith judgment, determine, including by reliance upon a certificate of the Company. Each Collateral Agent may rely conclusively, and shall be fully protected in so relying, on any determination made by it in accordance with the provisions of the preceding sentence (or as otherwise directed by a court of competent jurisdiction) and shall have no liability to the Company or any of its subsidiaries, any Secured Party or any other person as a result of such determination.

ARTICLE VI

Consent of Grantors

Each Grantor hereby consents to the provisions of this Agreement and the intercreditor arrangements provided for herein and agrees (a) that no Collateral Agent or other Secured Party shall have any liability to any Grantor as a result of the performance of its obligations hereunder and (b) that the obligations of the Grantors under the Senior Obligations Security Documents will in no way be diminished or otherwise affected by the provisions or arrangements provided for herein. Each Grantor also hereby confirms its respective guarantees, pledges and grants of security interests, as applicable, under each of the Credit Facilities Security Documents to which it is a party, and agrees that, notwithstanding the effectiveness of the Note Security Documents, such guarantees, pledges and grants of security interests shall continue to be in full force and effect and shall accrue to the benefit of the Credit Facilities Secured Parties.

Each of the parties hereto hereby irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the defense of an inconvenient forum to the maintenance of such action or proceeding in any such court.
